I use a very similar product for working on clients' hard drives. Very useful for deleting spyware, viruses, and other files and temp data which can be hard to remove from XP... especially the extra hidden files which don't show even when the options for showing hidden and system files are enabled.
These are also handy for fixing a stubborn XP boot drive which get rendered unbootable after an unclean dismount or system freeze... often these can be mounted with the 'force' parameter and then unmounted. Then the drive is often bootable to Windows again.
